I'm just getting started with Houdah Spot.

On my Mac, I have Adobe Acrobat and Readdle PDF Expert.
For quick editing and other simple work I use the much faster PDF Expert.
Acrobat serves for OCR and other Pre-Press stuff.

Within macOS I set up PDF Expert as my standard PDF application.
When I doubleclick a PDF file in Finder or Forklift, this works fine.
But Houdah Geo always uses Acrobat as default application, when I open a PDF in the search results.

I already tried to uninstall Acrobat: The result: HG opens the PDF in the macOS Preview.

Question: How can I make Houdah Geo open the PDFs in PDF Expert?

Thanks a lot

HoudahSpot should use the default application that you set in Finder.
  1. Select a PDF file in Finder
  2. Select File > Get Info
  3. In the Info window select PDF Expert from the menu under "Open with"
  4. Click "Change All…"
You may have to relaunch HoudahSpot for the settings to take effect there.

Thanks for your answer,

that's exactly what i already did.
PDF Expert is set as default application.
I restarted Houdah Spot and even my MacBookPro.

But HS always opens the PDF files in Acrobat.

HoudahSpot asks the system for the most appropriate (or selected) application to open each file. 

Have you set an exception for the file you are trying to open from HoudahSpot?
In HoudahSpot, select Results > Show Finder Info to get the Info for the file you have selected. Is this set to open with PDF Expert.

HoudahSpot uses two different ways to open files. Which one it uses depends on your search. If the search includes criteria (or main search field) for "text content" or "any text", HoudahSpot will pass that text on to the application that will open the file.

Try searching by "text content" or "any text". Then open a PDF from the result.
Try searching by name, file extension, or date only. Then open a PDF from the result.
Is Acrobat used in both situations?

Where have you installed PDF Expert? Is it in the Applications folder?
